Super Grub Disk will help you restore or fix your bootloader if an installer overwrites it.

 Distro hopping is a pastime enjoyed by many Linux users. The variety of Linux distros out there makes it fun to experiment with different ones. This often involves dual booting, keeping your tried and trusted distro, and maybe windows too, and installing a new one alongside it. This works well until the dreaded day when you reboot after an installation to find that it has removed all traces of your other operating systems from the bootloader menu. This leaves you two choices - boot from a live CD and run various GRUB commands in a terminal to restore things, or boot from Super Grub Disk and pick the option you want from a menu.

Super Grub Disk does one thing only, but does it well, it helps you repair and modify your bootloader setup. the 1.4 MB image can be written to a CD, USB stick or even a floppy disk if you have such ancient technology. From here it presents a very basic looking, but effective, set of text menus from which you can restore your previous bootloader glory. I hope you'll never need this, but if bootloader disaster does strike, it's good to know help is at hand.

Verdict:

 Worth keeping a copy around, just in case disaster strikes.

WhatsApp Messenger 2.12.1

Free Full Commercial Software

WhatsApp Messenger is the world's most popular instant messaging app for smartphones.

You can use it to send and receive text and voice messages, photos, videos, even call your friends in other countries, and because it uses your phone's internet connection it might not cost you anything at all (depending on whether you'll pay data charges).

It's easy to set up and use. There's no need to create and remember new account names or pins because it works with your phone number, and uses your regular address book to find and connect you with friends who use WhatsApp already.

You can talk one-to-one or in group chats, and because you're always logged in there's no way to miss messages. Even if your phone is turned off, WhatsApp will save your messages and display them as soon as you're back online.

There's plenty more (location sharing, contact exchange, message broadcasting) and the app is free for a year, currently $0.99/ year afterwards.

Version 2.12.1 brings:
 - WhatsApp Calling: Call your friends and family using WhatsApp for free, even if they’re in another country. WhatsApp calls use your phone’s Internet connection rather than your cellular plan’s voice minutes. Data charges may apply.
